Fiji Airways suspends 95 per cent of its international flights

Coronavirus travel restrictions

This is due to, you guessed it, Covid-19

All flights will be suspended, with the exception of twice-weekly services between Singapore and Nadi.

The airline is implementing Leave Without Pay of four weeks between April and June for all employees, and all senior management will take a 35-per-cent pay cut.

Civil Aviation Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said that these decisions had to be made due to reduced passenger numbers and global travel restrictions. “These are very dramatic times, very demanding times not just from an HR perspective, from a corporate governance perspective but also from a financial perspective too,” he said.

The Minister for Economy and Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said that Fiji Airways will be contacting customers affected by this suspension schedule over the coming days.
